    Do we have the opportunity to be one of the loudest NFL Stadiums this weekend? Is there a record or do they measure decibel levels at NFL games?

    In the 19-10 game the announcers said it was the loudest they had ever heard.

    I know some college stadiums have been measured at crazy levels.

    Let's literally blow the roof off the place Sunday.

    Whilst watch the 49ers game last weekend, they claimed that it was the loudest NFL stadium on record.

    Which surprised me quite a lot.

    The MNF game vs the Saints? I guess towards the end it got to be a good game, Candlestick seems like a cool stadium.

    They play great at home and putrid on the road. That's how I do my pick-ems with them, no matter who they're playing. :kitten:

    They only bring in the decibel meter for games they think will be loud.

    Having a closed roof this week will help a great deal

    I think Guinness (not the beer) had their people out a few years ago to Kyle Field to measure crowd noise. That's Texas ATM, College Station... lol

    As far as the NFL goes, or any team/stadium/game.... I would say this game against the Cowboys definitely has the chance to be one of the loudest. I feel like Reliant is set up well, the roof will be closed, we're coming off 2 awesome awesome wins, we're undefeated, we have huge huge playoff hopes, everyone is LOVING on our Texans right now, there will be a decent number of drunks and we're playing the gosh darn Cowboys!!

    The loudest stadium I have ever heard was the Silverdome back when the Lions had Barry Sanders and weren't a walking punchline. I walked out of that place literally feeling like my ears were vibrating.

    Rich Stadium (now Ralph Wilson) was also 'insane in the membrane' loud back in their glory years in the early 90s.

    FedEx Field awe-fully loud this past Sunday in their game against the Texans. There were times I couldn't hear my wife who was seated next to me.

    I think there were way too many Cowboys fans at Reliant yesterday to reach the decibels that y'all were hoping for. The Colts game sounded a lot louder via the tv.
